Topic: Want to identify Pom Pon stick?
Message: Posted by: magicmind (Jun 28, 2006 03:23PM)
Pom Pon stick is heavy chromed/nickle plated copper. Comes apart in the center and the gimmick is made of wood with metal pulleys, other than the usual you magnets added to them. Big Pon-pons that look like they are made of heavy yarn. The are very dense and nicely round. By the colors appears to be from the 50's (powder blue/yellow...). Any ideas who could have produced this piece? This was from the estate of an older magician, with no instructions, just in very good repair.

HEY...I have one of these, too! I can't find the maker, and I've been searching for 10 years! Does yours also have 3 particular initials stamped into the metal collar part that holds the 2 sections together? We may have found something here!

I've posted about it before, and asked some VERY knowledgable people in the last 10 years, and STILL don't know anything about it!

Hey guys...what are the 3 initials???

I don't know about Magicmind's...but on mine, it's a closely grouped "EPC". There are also 4 or 5 small, TINY indentations around the circumference of the collar.

Anybody know something?
